Winner: The Brown Corporation

    Despite what many students think, their beloved “university-college” Brown University is at its core a business. Like any business, Brown must compete in the free market and continue to produce the best possible product it can. To the chagrin of many students who would like to see the expansion of Brown halted in order to reduce the co-pay of library workers, the Corporation has committed itself to improving Brown in almost every way possible, ensuring that Brown will improve its product in the competitive higher education market. By building residence halls, improving existing buildings and reinvesting the endowment, Brown has become more attractive to incoming students, or more importantly, potential customers.
